Duration:15-20 minutes
Saw 3 pulsating bright Amber lights in Triangle shape in SSW skies hover over mt. range between Bouse and Quartzsite Arizona.

At 12:45 AM MST, 3/28/01, Bouse Arizona, I was called out by my husband to look into the SSW sky to witness 3 extremely bright, pulsating amber lights hovering in a trangle formation over the Plomosa mountain range. This range is about 10-12 miles from us and is between us and Quartzsite, AZ/Blythe, CA. We had been notified earlier by a friend who saw similar lights earlier that night over Parker AZ (33 miles West of us bordering the Colorado River). My husband saw more bright lights over the Butler Valley in the NE that were just a bright. But I did not see these. I went out with my 7x50 binoculars and 20x50 binoculars to watch the triangular formation of extremely bright amber lights. They just hovered there keeping a constant triangle formation and at one point, turned slightly. Then they slowly disappeared over the Plomosa mountain range. But I could see the glow from them rising above the mountain tops and waited just encase they reappeared. They did in the same formation and just as bright. Then after a few minutes, turned and slowly faded away. I kept a watch with my 20x50 binoculars and you could see these did pulsate a very bright amber light...much brighter than anything I have seen before in this area. There were no other colored lights on these things that I could see as you would see on an airplane while veiwing them through the binoculars. They did not "wink" out but faded out and kept station in relation to each other all the while. My husband also saw the glow when these lights first went down over the Plomosa range and saw the glow as well. Then witnessed the reappearance. In all, the event lasted about 15 to 20 or so.

((NUFORC Note: These witnesses are well known to us, and they have reported several such incidents in their area. The witnesses appear to us to be very good observers. PD))
